Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has expressed belief that Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, would thrive at Manchester United if he were to make the move next summer.

The 34 year old remains tied to the Spanish champions until 2021, after which he could leave, but speculations have arisen in recent days that he could consider a move away.

And with former Paris Saint-Germain captain, Thiago Silva, doing very well at Chelsea, Berbatov believes Ramos could have the same effect at United if he were to join.

Speaking under his column for BetFair recently, the Bulgarian said: “There has been a lot of speculation about the future of Sergio Ramos, according to reports both the player and club are yet to come to an agreement on a new contract. With Ramos 34 years old, they are probably fighting over a one-year or two-year contract.

“Thiago Silva, who is even older at 36 years old, has proven that it is never too late to move to the Premier League and so far it is working out well for the Brazilian.

“I’m sure if Ramos wanted to move to a club like United then it would work out well for him too. He’s in great shape, he’s still a world-class defender and in my opinion”.

It is believed that Ramos is likely to extend his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu than move elsewhere, given his history with the club.
